For best results when grilling these steak and pepper fajitas, choose quality meat that is 92 percent lean or higher. If possible, look for meet that is also sustainably raised and free of added hormones or antibiotics. And utilize these tips for maximizing flavor:

  • Let dry spice rubs penetrate the meat to tenderize and add extra flavor. To help keep meat moist and lock in flavorful juices when grilling, use the cover on your grill during part or all of the cook time . If your grill doesn’t have a cover, improvise by putting a large, disposable foil roasting pan over the food.
  • Some lean meats cook in less time than fattier cuts, so it is important to keep an eye on the doneness.

And don’t forget the flavorful dairy-free condiments. You can purchase them at the store, but it’s easy to make your own unique salsa. Try this Avocado Salsa from The Vegetarian Mamma or this Zesty Mango Tomato Salsa for a flavor twist.
